Wear the lilac and speak his name 2017

12th March 2015 – the year we lost my favourite author Sir Terry Pratchett. In one of his books his characters pay tribute every year to a disaster that happened by “wearing the lilac”, something akin to wearing a poppy every year to remember World War 1. So fans of the Discworld series now “wear the lilac” each year to mark his death. We also follow his quote “Do you not know that a man is not dead while his name is still spoken?” and speak his name.

Below is my contribution for 2017.

    You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be actually something that I think I might never understand. It seems too complex and very wide for me. I am having a look forward to your next post, I will attempt to get the hang of it!
